Day 45: Dreams

Dreams are the very stuff of life, and of poetry. 

And who better to translate their infinite importance than EE Cummings in his signature snappy, enigmatic, energetic style? This poem is like stardust, glittering and sparkling on the page with essential truths for living. A poem for inhaling, remembering, and living.

dive for dreams - ee cummings

dive for dreams
or a slogan may topple you
(trees are their roots
and wind is wind)

trust your heart
if the seas catch fire
(and live by love
though the stars walk backward)

honour the past
but welcome the future
(and dance your death
away at the wedding)

never mind a world
with its villains or heroes
(for god likes girls
and tomorrow and the earth)
